Tamme's best season was a fantasy TE15 effort in 2010 as an injury substitute for Dallas Clark with Peyton Manning as his quarterback. Tamme has upside as a red zone receiver and high-volume option in the short zones of the field. If Justin Hardy is slow to acclimate as a rookie, Tamme could see enough targets to become the No.3 receiving option in Atlanta's passing offense.

Summary

Super-sized Levine Toilolo is a huge (6' 8", 260 pounds) tight end who showed a knack in the red-zone on limited touches during 2013. However, his 2014 season was a disappointment in fantasy terms (51 targets for 31/238/2) as he was asked to stay in and block with the struggling Atlanta offensive line for much of the year. During 2015 free agency the Falcons signed Jacob Tamme, late of Denver, who had his best season as a receiver in Indianapolis during 2010 (67/631/4 receiving) - he got a two-year deal from Atlanta back in March. Tamme may challenge Toilolo for the starting job during training camp, and Tamme appears to be the better hope for fantasy production from the tight end position entering 2015. This is a situation that bears watching during the 2015 training camp/preseason. (May 14)
